Instagram sensation Caroline Kaufman (@poeticpoison) is back at it again with her second book of short poems about love, life and everything in between.
Similar to her last book, Kaufman found her inspiration for When the World Didn’t End: from her personal experiences living with depression. The book dedication reads “To the little girl who never cared what anyone else thought. I’ve missed you. Welcome home.”
Her book is organized in three parts— what was, what could have been and what became. Each poem, regardless of its placement, tackles a story from a different point in her life, whether that be a vivid childhood memory or an experience from her college years. Some pages are graced with simple black and white graphics that serve as the themes of her poems.
Kaufman’s “messy ramblings” are incredibly refreshing. Her metaphors click. Her experiences are unique, yet readers can see their own problems in her writing. She continues to put a new spin on this style of poetic writing that people thought only Rupi Kaur could pull off.
Kaufman discusses the uncertain future and reminds us that, regardless of our age, we are all still growing up. And sometimes— the world just doesn’t end.
